Since yesterday I can get only 960x540p on my Odroid N2. Till then I had no problems getting and playing NF streams in 1080p. Does anybody know the reason for this, and of course, is there a fix for this, since nothing changed in my setup and I am using latest NF addon version…
Can anybody check this, maybe it’s region specific. I’m watching NF in Croatia.
Yes, all Linux-Arm devices that use NF addon that mimics Chrome are affected, and there is no solution yet. Netflix not only lowered bitrate to a minimum, but also went so far to disable HD streams on all Amlogic devices running on Linux/Elec as well as on all RPis. I just don’t see how such a move raises their profit…
If that is the reason, it’s futile and pretty stupid from them. I have a friend who is pirating their UHD streams (and uploading them on a well known torrent site) with a perfectly legal and from Netflix approved device
In short - it will not work.
ESN code has many details which identifies clients. At the moment it uses identification from Chrome OS -01-. Changing ESN identification to Linux -LX- for example, does not work… Read more about efforts to solve this problem here.
Yes, N2 users (along with RPi users) can enjoy NF in HD again, for how long, that is THE question
Netflix is constantly changing things and working towards to block all HD/UHD users who don’t use their certified devices.
